But there is So. Much. Plot that gets whizzed through in the last montage sequence! Can't help wondering how many people watching the story for the first time worked out what was going on with Tarr in Paris, and why Haydon was killed, and I wish they could have given a little more time to the faithless beautiful Ann.
Ricky Tarr was great, and unexpectedly, so was Connie Sachs - in fact, I wish they'd let her do a bit more with the part. Benedict Cumberbatch a little disappointing as Guillam, I thought - too young, and he made Guillam's nerves too obvious: Guillam is supposed to be good at his job! I think a more subtle actor could have done that better. Colin Firth made a great Haydon though. Very appropriately magnetic but also dodgy.
Still. Le Carré! Hurray!
